12oz canned 7/25/17 poured into a .5L krug at fridge temp 5.7% ABV 23 IBU per website. The beer pours bright light amber in color. The head is off white and lasts for about 90 seconds. No lacing, no head after that. The aroma is faint caramel and yeast. The flavor is faint caramel up front transitioning to a slightly bitter lingering aftertaste. Mouthfeel is thin bodied, moderately carbonated and dry in finish. There is a oily/soapy aftertaste & feel that suggests issues with fermentation or lagering. Overall, not good. This beer is brewery distributed to my local and was purchased cold within a month of canning. Sun King cannot brew a lager to save their business. This is the third lager I've had from them and they have all been flawed.

This is one of my favorite Sun King seasonally. A very good fall beer, with a solid malt profile. Always worth picking up some of these when you see them.
